A Vocational Training Directory.
Heymans, Susan; Hirschowitz, Ros
This directory describes the training that is taking place in the private sector in the various industries in South Africa, excluding agriculture and domestic service, at a macro level. It focuses on training given or coordinated by industry training boards, regional training centers, certain employer organizations, and certain large employers, as an example of training that is available in an industry. Industries are classified into the following categories: mining and quarrying; manufacturing (food beverages and tobacco; textile, clothing, and leather; wood and wood products; paper and paper products; chemicals; nonmetallic mineral products; metal products, machinery, and equipment; electricity, gas, and water; construction; wholesale and retail trade, catering, and accommodation; transport, storage, and communication; finance, insurance, real estate, and business services; and community, social, and personal services.) Descriptions of training organizations are presented alphabetically, according to the industries in which they are found. Each description covers such areas as running training courses, coordination and administration of training, setting syllabi and setting standards, setting examinations, training for trainers or instructors, financing of training, training facilities, and contact person. A description of the training available at the nine regional training centers concludes the directory. (YLB)
